    Draw two ovals. The one on the left should be larger than the one on the right, like a lopsided snowman.

    Add two rectangles and one line to connect all the shapes. The upper rectangle will serve as the neck of the guitar, and the line is the beginning of a string.

    Draw a small circle inside of the smaller upper oval. Add semicircles on the sides and tighten up your lines to make your guitar even more real-looking

    Draw two wavy lines to indicate the shape of the guitar. (At this point you should really begin to see it start looking like a musical instrument; if it doesn't, go back and make sure you haven't distorted anything.) Erase excess lines as seen.

    Outline and color the drawing. Use shades of brown, unless your guitar is unusually colorful. Experiment with different shading and patterns to find out what looks the best.

Tips

  • Don't be afraid to experiment on the shape of the body and the end of the fret board.
  • Remove the black from several parts, like the string and the frets so that they don't blend in too much.
